Watch What Viper Venom Does to Human Blood

If you’ve ever wondered why viper venom is so dangerous, here you go.

It’s not pretty.

In this video, a snake farmer extracts venom from the fangs of a Russell’s viper, one of the deadliest snakes in Asia.

Indian snake farmers harvest the venom for antivenin. According to the narrator, one ounce of the Russell’s viper venom is worth nearly 10 times the amount of one ounce of pure gold.

A single drop of the snake’s venom can have a devastating effect when mixed with blood. Take a look.

It only took 30 seconds for the viper venom to turn the blood into a cake.

In the words of Indiana Jones, “I hate snakes.”
